Madeleine L'Engle and Elizabeth M. Riley discuss children's books

BROADCAST: Jul. 17, 1963 | DURATION: 00:51:57


Newberry Award winner Madeleine L'Engle did not set out to write good literature when she wrote "A Wrinkle in Time". Children's book publisher Elizabeth M. Riley also said of L'Engle's book, it's a good story for both children and adults. L'Engle shared her experience that when she writes, often times, she'll read what she's written to her children & if they say, "get back to the typewriter and write more," she knows she's onto something good.
